The borough council’s planning committee yesterday approved plans from Saheed Ahmed to build a pair of semi-detached, three-bedroomed dwellings on the land off Queen Street along with a block of three, two-bedroomed flats.

The site previously had planning permission in 2014 for a similar build which was not progressed.

Planning permission was required again due to the number of listed buildings nearby.

The homes will be built behind Queen Street.

The site lies behind the Queen Street buildings and also has an access off Friar’s Way.

Following a consultation period no objections were received and the planning committee unanimously approved the plans.
